A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Nothing redeeming here, though it's completely tongue-in-cheek. Lots of toilet humor (no surprise there), and poor treatment of female characters.
Violence & Scariness
Frequent gunfire with blood spraying or pooling -- in an exaggerated, comic (and animated) manner.

Animated, jokey groping scene between naked adults. Breast-fondling visible. Sounds of and shadowed views of a sexual act. The main character is a naked butt. Prostitutes feature prominently in the show.

"Ass", obviously, as well as plenty of other expletives. Harsher curse words, like "f--k," are bleeped but obvious.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this animated series (part of the Cartoon Network's late-night Adult Swim lineup) is for very mature teens and adults only. The main character is a naked butt with a drinking problem who, as a renegade detective, shoots his gun with abandon. Scenes include naked, groping adults and visible breast-fondling. Viewers also hear an explicit sex scene and see it in shadows. Blood flows freely, though in animated form, and dark subject matter -- like the murder of a prostitute -- is the subject of the comedy. Crass language is frequent.
Is It Any Good?
Episodes are only a few minutes long, but they're packed full of every violent, crass, cynical element you can think of. For example, one episode follows Assy's investigation of a murdered hooker. Viewers meet the city's corrupt mayor and the ragged-faced chief of police, and a flashback scene features President John Adams and his "favorite whore" cavorting naked under a bridge. Next thing you know, Adams has unwittingly killed the woman, setting up the present-day storyline.
Obviously, this isn't kid-friendly material. Some older teens will enjoy the juxtaposition of animation with the dark, crass material, and there are some funny moments thanks to the clever writing and the just plain strangeness of watching a talking butt walk around. Nevertheless, parents may prefer that even mature teens avoid the show due to its sexual content, especially the parts that potentially demean women.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
